This collection is just one of many that shows Verner Panton talent with colour. He was especially known for creating explosions of colour and people stood in long queues to see his designs. For example, he did a show where everything was orange, it was called the Orangery, and it was described Verner Panton like crazy – especially in the Danish press. Wire lamp is a sign of yet another explosion.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926-1998) was an inspirational and colourful personality. A unique person with a special sense of colours, shapes, light function and room.

Verner Panton studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen before going on to work at Arne Jacobsen’s architectural practice. He set up his own design studio in 1955.

Over the course of his career, Verner Panton introduced a series of modern lamps and furniture with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries. With a remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of the form, he worked successfully to create a new set of theories about how lighting and furniture should work and how they should influence its surrounding.
